What we do (our services)

This list of our services is by no means exhaustive, but gives a good outline of some of the work we do with clients, from one off pieces to full management of Marketing, PR and New Media.

If there’s a particular piece of work that you’d like us to do just ask.

Writing

Press Releases
A press release is a great way to promote your company and engage with your audience, without having to pay for advertising fees. Asparagus can not only give you ideas for press releases, but develop creative stories and interesting news to engage with your market, whether it be trade or in the public eye. We also have relationships in the newspaper and magazine world, that will help you get your message out there.

Copywriting
Creative and imaginative copy can go a long way to giving your company the image you’re trying to achieve. Whether its through website content, brochures, direct mail or company literature, Asparagus can transfer ideas and concepts into imaginative words and imagery to really inspire your target market.

Editing
Through successful editing, your materials can cut out a lot of unnecessary information that can often confuse or switch off customers. Asparagus has a wealth of experience of promotional literature and have seen as many materials that work, as ones that don’t!

Proofreading
It’s vital that with every touch point your customer has with your company or brand, that information is accurate. Errors (no matter how small) can often give a poor impression. As this is our day job, we can give your literature the care and attention that you simply have not got time to and ensure that you’re producing accurate and well detailed materials for your customers and prospects.

Design

Website design
In an age where the internet has so much to offer and is so accessible, a website presence is really important and acts as another means to engage with your customers.

Not only that, but we can help drive traffic and promote the website on and off-line. We’re not just here to give you a product, but we want to give you a great service too.

Brand logos
It’s been said that a picture can say a thousand words and this is no different for your brand logo. Not only are you creating a face for your product or service, but giving it personality, character and an image that your customers can relate to and engage with in an easy, yet incredibly powerful way.

Commercial photography
To really capture the essence of your products, brand or service, our photography can give your materials a really professional finish. Asparagus can help with concepts, creative and set up of photographs. Calling upon our expertise, knowledge and professional equipment to ensure you get the very best out of your photographs. Just have a look through some of our example work we’ve done for clients.

Competitions
Another great mechanic to attract new and existing customers, but where do you begin? What’s legal and what isn’t? Which competitions excite customers and which ones are a bit naff?! Asparagus can advise and manage the setting up, running and administering of your competitions to help you reward your customers and free up your time.

Brochures and Annual Reports
Brochures can be a great way to educate current and new customers, whilst annual reports are a must to many organisations, yet they report the whole picture of your company and, are therefore, very important to get right.
